Surprise!! Just in time for the holiday weekend Amazon has made a super duper reduction in the price of #RhythmsOfRest today -- $1.25 in the US and £.96 in the UK. A steal of a deal! http://amzn.to/2rpkHvD

Go back to the place you love most when your heart feels lost. Seek shelter in the forest and breathe the familiar air deep, deep, deep into your lungs, as a small reminder that you are indeed alive and breathing. Find the skeletal beast you made with your own two hands and placed in the forest three summers ago, then ask it to watch over the campers and counselors when you must leave tomorrow.

"We're not perfect people, we're just letting God use us."
Have you ever faced something really, really difficult? Have you wondered if you could get through it? If you would live to see the other side? My friend Nicole Dawson (@allergylicious) is not only a food-allergy blogger, heath coach, pastor’s wife, mama of three, and a creative genius in the kitchen—but she’s also no stranger to adversity. Like other amazing women who have done great things, Nicole’s sweat and tears are weaved into the story behind the glory. I promise, you WANT to hear this conversation! So grab some coffee, pull up a chair (or pop in your earbuds), and join us at The Messy Table.☺️☕️🎧 [link in profile] #themessytablepodcast

It occurred to me the other day, after a period of several rainy days, that the sun shines most brightly after long periods of cloudiness. I don't know if that's just in my mind or if it's an actual scientific thing, but the colors of creation seem even MORE brilliant the day the sun comes back out. Honestly, I often don't notice the cloudiness until the sun comes out and then I wonder "how long was it gone?" God showed me how often this mirrors my spiritual life. In the cloudiness and the stormy seasons, I often forget that the sun is still there behind the rain. I have thoughts of "when will it ever shine again?!" In reality, of course the sun IS always there, just as God Is ALWAYS there. It's not that He is further away or has removed himself from the situation, it's just that the clouds - our circumstances- are covering Him. But when we continue to claim His promises, continue naming Him for who He is, continue pursuing God even IN the rain, we have victory over the clouds, y'all. It's not that the storms will go away sooner, but it's that we are choosing to see the Son instead of the storms. "Oh, that we might know the LORD! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring." Hosea 6:3, NLT ❤️ #lbfaith

You are so very valuable and unconditionally loved. Don't ever forget that or let anyone tell you otherwise 👑✨💗

What is it about the lapping of water that soothes a weary soul?? Whenever I find myself frazzled and worn out from the busyness of everyday life, I find myself, like lots of people, craving the water. Of course, when I feel like that, it is also a reminder to me that I need to seek Living Water. Praying we all find Him this weekend - in whatever we find ourselves doing. In the fireworks, in the ballgames, in the preparation of feasts, that we find Him everywhere just as He is. And that we all kind find some time to be next to the water. ❤️ #lbfaith

Numbers 9

What a beautiful picture we see in the Old Testament of God's spirit moving among his people.

His spirit was in a cloud over the tabernacle. If it moved, they moved. If it stayed, they stayed. Whether two days, a month, or longer. They trusted its direction, they followed.

Surely this left no time for the people to truly settle in. They always had in their minds that their dwelling was temporary, that the place they were camping was not their true home.

My prayer is that I would follow in the same way. To recognize and inquire what God would have me do each and every day. To trust that he has me stay where I am at until he moves, and that when he moves I would move.

This applies as much to the weekends as the weekdays. Let me rest when he says rest. Let me serve when he says serve. Let me trust that his spirit can show me the way, and that his ways are better than my ways.

Go back to the place you love most when your heart feels lost. Seek shelter in the forest and breathe the familiar air deep, deep, deep into your lungs, as a small reminder that you are indeed alive and breathing. Find the skeletal beast you made with your own two hands and placed in the forest three summers ago, then ask it to watch over the campers and counselors when you must leave tomorrow.

As it helps to keep your mind clear and strong...

My vacation reads is always an ambition stack- especially considering this doesn't take into account the kindle or audio books. And let's not get started on how many journals one needs in their beach bag. 😬☺️ •
My friend, Gary Morland (without an "e") has a new book releasing June 6th and it's on the top of my pile. I met Gary last fall at a writers' workshop and knew immediately his experiential wisdom and practical kindness was something special. You can pre-order his book for less than $9 right now on Amazon.

For those who feel like you have little to give to God: God says to simply give what you have.

This convicts me and yet frees me this morning. I enthusiastically started this account less than a year ago, but started my blog writing nearly 10 years ago. I have the dream to write for the Lord, but often sink into "how is that going to fit into my life?", "what does God actually want me to do?", or "how did that mom of FOUR manage to write a book AND have a bright and airy house for her photos?"

So this morning, in the 5 minutes before I hear the sound of a baby crying, I am going to rest on the notion that God is pleased with the little time I have to give. He's urging me on in 5 minute windows of time. He's whispering "just keep going".

What treasures there are in this pursuit of who he has called me to be. Perhaps the biggest treasure in this journey is the process of learning to know and trust him with a dream that he gave me. It is through this that I see his patience displayed, his encouragement, his love for me, and his long suffering with me.

Let us hand over 5 minutes at a time, let's hand over our hopes and dreams, let's stop comparing our progress to others, and let's know that what we will get in return will be the best gift in return: more of Jesus.

Food is essential to life so make it healthy

I promise for as long as I'm breathing, I will speak about what a game changer camp is. Working there was a passion project intricately woven into my lifestyle and I'm not going to lie, I have been facing major anxiety that leaves me laying on the floor about not being there this summer. I'm truly the most real version of myself when gathered around the campfire or romping around the forest. Over four summers as a counselor (and many camper years before that) I've found best friends, soul sisters, little sisters who remind me of my younger self, antics partners, and family. God worked so intentionally in blessing me with the desire to be the person I wished I had when I was in middle school, to remind those around the campfire and in my cabin that they are seen, valuable, worthy, loved and brave. Speaking those words is turning into my life's mission, my life's passion project. Camp is a place to lay down burdens and let others help carry them. My feet won't be there all summer. Perhaps it's time to open the door and figure out how to be a camp counselor in the real world.

Do not place your identity in what you do, for it is only temporary. Who you are is eternal.

Have you ever wondered what Spring tastes like? #thursday

Do what needs to be done, whenever and wherever you can. Staying focused will keep you motivated...

The key to adventure is the willingness to step out into the unknown. Taking a risk can be one of the hardest things you ever do. It can also be one of the most rewarding. What's your adventure?
In Courage,
JTM

Most days, I wake up and have barely the foggiest idea of how I'm holding all the pieces of my life. I make coffee then I drop part of the puzzle. I bend down to pick that piece up and end up dropping twelve more. I don't know what I'm doing or where I'm going, but I do know that I want to be intentional. I hope that even if in even the smallest way, my words encourage you to slam the old oak door on Fear and then get the shovel to dig out what of yours needs to be given to humanity. I hope you are aware of your lion's heart and know that God will use you no matter where you're planted. I hope you know that I see you, I hear you and I love you to pieces. And when you drop the pieces, know that flowers are going to bloom 🌱

Acceptance will make you invisible if you have to change to get it.

Friendship comes in all different sizes — just like the dough we rolled out that morning, some more yielding and receptive than others. But with a little coaxing and a delightful combination of spices, both the crusty, cheesy pepperoni bread and our newly found friendship, tasted delightful. And right. - Join me today at @incourage for a sweet story of friendship.
